Though Daniel Craig is all set to return for Bond 25, we might be seeing the English actor on screen beforehand in a different kind of role. Variety is reporting today that Craig has signed on for Courtney Hunt’s upcoming film The Whole Truth. The script, penned by Nicholas Kazan, is set to be a courtroom thriller/drama and will have the actor playing a lawyer. That, and the fact that it will be shot in Boston, are all we really know about the project at this time.
Bond 25 currently has a release date set for November 6th, 2015. With that in mind, I would imagine that The Whole Truth will go first as being an indie film, it’s clearly not as big of a production and no doubt has a shorter shooting schedule. Unfortunately, no release date has been set yet but with Craig now on board, things will likely get moving pretty quickly.
I’m all for seeing the next James Bond film but I do happen to also enjoy Daniel Craig as an actor outside of his iconic role. He’s proven himself to be more than just a good looking super spy and it will be refreshing to see him stepping into something a bit more low-key, like he’ll be doing here. Plus, I always love a good courtroom thriller and with Hunt and Craig attached, this one certainly sounds promising.
Tell us, are you a fan of Daniel Craig? If so, what do you think of him taking the lead role in Courtney Hunt’s The Whole Truth?
